Going Postal deserves some kind of award for good computer metaphors. (Yes, this is the sort of thing my brain does when I go to bed early and then wake up in the middle of the night.) Ooo, Nebula Award! Whee!
That's the best broken-down-for-the-layman metaphorical depiction of cracking that I've ever read.
Oldest computers are replaced first. The machine that everyone does timesheets on should be next. It lags horribly.
Monitor/check-in today. There would have been 4 of us monitoring, but Homie G was out sick, so K-Bone had to fill in for him supervising, and then one of the other monitors was out as well, so it's down to me and Sexy Bone.
Argh. I really hate it when Rev. Not-So-Nice Supervisor is running jobs that I'm monitoring, because it feels like he rarely discusses issues brought to light in the monitor reports with the phone goons. It's probably just me feeling that way, but it's not a nice feeling.
"Listening to fax machines" is a thing that I don't want to have to put on anyone's monitor report, because if they're listening to fax machines and I'm monitoring them, then I'm listening to fax machines. And I don't like listening to fax machines.
There's nothing really clever for me to say about work today.
The lady who's known for barking at respondents didn't do that today, at least.
Poser-Geek showed up! It was good to see him. He still fits in here.
A cranky monitor does not let the phone goons get away with much. A mellow and chilled-out monitor is much less strict.
Leftovers are a good thing. I have that today. V called with hugs from bellydancing. She is all over the place. I miss her.
I am behind on monitoring. Too much stuff to do. I just might make it. Maybe. The velcro thing is still annoying.
Looks like a later night than it's been lately. Took break much later than most monitors should be taking it. Alas, poor monitors.
It really is amazing to see what people who aren't computer people don't know. Stressy College Chick was annoyed that the Plaid Geek was acting like she was ignorant or five when he was showing her what to do, but it was really something that is that simple if you're a technical person, and we do tend to forget how challenging these things can be if you're not used to it. Sort of like tying shoes, in that until you get it down, you're all over the place and clueless. Except adults aren't always so used to that feeling of helplessness, and the condescension.
The Goose Girl really has blossomed into a confident interviewer. I remember her jumping at her shadow when she first came here. It's great to see her sure of herself and not cringing when she gets something wrong.
Sexy bone & I did get all the monitoring done. The queen bee will not sting us. I can see an illustration worker monitors
